Soldier's Block · Shiraz 2020
Soft supple Victorian Shiraz, dangerously moorish by the glass.
How it's made
Our Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalyptus flavors and saline finish associated with the area. Picked at night and crushed within an hour of picking before being sent to the fermentation tanks. The Shiraz grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained between 72º to 77ºF to avoid extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good color. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged. The winemaker also added 5% Malbec at the end of the whole process – a sneaky technique that gives a mulberry fruit twist on the finish.
Drink with Moroccan lamb tagine, roasted vegetables and hard cheeses.
Bright, aromatic and juicy on the nose with just a touch of naughty bacon fat. True to the varietal, the tiny proportion of Malbec in this blend gives a flowery perfume aroma. This vintage is our brightest, most dangerously drinkable Shiraz to date, due to it's fine, bright fruit and soft silky elegance.
